Does anybody else feel the lewa OS thread should have been left open for discussion? I feel we dismissed a great rom too quickly :/

Yeah, me too. I think mods were too rude deciding what we should use or not. If I will use it I will f*cking use it. The ROM is great and the warning about Umeng could be in the official forum. Just nobody checked it. Maybe burstlam can help? @cyclothunder got deleted due Umeng analytics implementation without warning which is apparently against MoDaCo rules -.-

Dam! :(
I'm using this rom and loving it! In other hand there should be an option for turning Umeng off. For now i think will be using it.
By the way, are they, "analyzing" my contact's phone number?

Umeng is a kind of Flurry.
Flurry Is Big Data
Flurry is a big data company. We're already handling terabytes of data per week and storing petabytes of total data. Next stop: exabytes. As we've scaled our back end, we've created among the largest HBase clusters in the world, running on Hadoop


Since first offering Flurry Analytics in January 2009, the volume of data we handle has grown consistently by 20% month-over-month. At our peak, we handle more than 15,000 session reports per second: that is over 3 times the total number of tweets per second managed by Twitter (source: @twitterglobalpr). Flurry tracks over 200 billion total data points per month, including any unique event or action tracked within any app sessions.

so i think that's a misunderstood about lewa and umeng. Umeng is kind of flurry in china, the company invest by KAI-FU LEE(EX-Google Vice President) Innovation Works CEO now

Jaret, just a couple of questions.
Why did dolphin HD browser quickly remove umeng software when it was found in their browser? Surely they would have allayed customers fears and kept it in if it was harmless. They tried to cover it up initially until it became public, then described it as a security breach of 0 on a scale of 1-10, and then later removed it completely. Supposedly secure data sent over https was alledgedly also gathered.

Is there a way for an end user to easily switch off the sending of data to umeng?

What differences are there between umeng, and IQ as found on HTC phones that resulted in class action lawsuits being filed, privacy advocators up in arms and politicians calling for a federal investigation?

Is any user identifiable data collected?

Is any of this data sold on to third parties?

Is data encrypted before being sent from the phone to umeng?

Is https data gathered either intentionally or inadvertently or is it possible that your software supports it and it can be easily implemented?

Would you personally be happy to find out that your information had been taken and tracked without your knowledge, and then accept that everything is ok as the company collecting that data handles substantially more data than twitter?

Does umeng have a privacy policy in place that we could have a look at, in English if possible, or a link so we can translate it?

Got a message from the mods today as to why they removed the topic about lewa os:
Hi,
As you can see one of the other moderators has locked down your thread posting the lew_os rom. We need more info on the company collecting the data and what they are actually doing with it if anything as such.Once a proper warning/ explanation is visible (preferably at the top of the page and not lower down after the images) I will make it visible again.

Maybe some chinese users can try to figure out something more about the collection of the data?

i tried reading some stuff on the lewa forums but even with google translate its had to fully understand everything :P

Maybe we can trace which apk is responsible for it and remove it from the rom?
edit: never mind, found the cache of the other thread and saw people are already trying it by freezing apps etc.

xda developers were discussing this and said
'Ti Backup -> remove Moblick Agent -> no more
data reporting?'

has anyone here tried it? I have been put off even trying the rom but it may be worth doing.

if you froze most of the default apps, what's the use of this rom?
Is there still any advantage running this one iso cm7?

which did you freeze?
I've got version 23 and found the launcher, calendar 365, but no pond and which are the other 2 I see on your op?

i froze:

Launcher_lewa_Rom
Lewa Pond
some kind of alternate maket which has a chinese name
the chinese filemanager that comes with the rom
365 callendar app.

but i just noticed something while checking out Titanium Backup there is this application called com.lewa.providers.location Lewa... maye thats whats sending the information?

android dev information on a location provider:


An abstract superclass for location providers. A location provider provides periodic reports on the geographical location of the device. Each provider has a set of criteria under which it may be used; for example, some providers require GPS hardware and visibility to a number of satellites; others require the use of the cellular radio, or access to a specific carrier's network, or to the internet. They may also have different battery consumption characteristics or monetary costs to the user. The Criteria class allows providers to be selected based on user-specified criteria.

anyways, i guess we could prolly say that umeng.com is just a company thats helping developers analyze statistic information.
some post i took from xda developers:


About browsers being on Market and AP doing a good job let me tell you that's not sufficient. Google don't give a sh.t about apps permissions, all they manage to control are malware and apps like Tubemate, last one because they don't like to lose control over their websites.
The only reason Dolphin HD exploit was revealed was it's big success and dedicated developers and hackers watching it. As a Google point of view Dolphin isn't doing nothing illegal, Google just don't take any responsibility by informing users about permissions, something that most do not know how to interpret.
- Dolphin HD keeps sending same packets as always, only thing they changed it's now info it's encrypted and webzine feature is disabled. "Dolphin now phones home via SSL to https://tracken.dolphin-browser.com , which means it was a PITA to determine the traffic to be ultimately tame, though obnoxious."
- Boat Browser used to be very suspicious till last 2.4.1 release. They also keep sending packets but much less now (http://www.umeng.com/app_logs )
- Skyfire had several problems in the past and guess what... yes packets are still going
- Opera Mobile it's save BUT the minute you activate speed browsing all stuff is handled on they're servers before we see it. What happens to processed data?
- Ninesky spews forth your IMEI and possibly coarse location to www.umeng.com whenever you switch back to the browser and sends encrypted URLS of visited pages to cloud.ninesky.com/browser/api

No pond over here.
Maybe it is only in v30?

Yes, I noticed the location lewa too and froze it.

I will start unfreeze some stuff and see when umeng shows up again

btw: what an amazing fast and fluid rom!!!

edit: can't we simply add umeng.com to our hosts file?
